Title: Mrs. soupbone's garden
Post by: soupbone on June 04, 2015, 05:24:19 PM
So after years of hearing me yammer about gardens, and seeing all of the posts titled "Someone's Garden", Mrs. s decided that she wanted her own this year. So she got a small plot of land, tilled it herself, fertilized it, watered it and planted her crop.

Now it's nurture it, water it and hope for a bumper crop.

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Mrs. s' 2015 Garden:

Let y'all know how it went.

What variety is it? And being in the house it could live 6 or more years.

It's a Roma, and we decided to try it just for fun. Living in an apartment has it's disadvantages as well as its advantages - a lack of land being one. Last year, we had a basil plant (named Rathbone, of course); this one we call Popa....

I'm pretty sure it's a hybrid - could it still last several years? And would it bear fruit in the following years?

Thanks, Cedar

My dad dug up a tomato and brought it inside because he didn't believe it would keep growing. It did. Produced some odd small fruit though. Probably not enough sun/heat in the Milwaukee winter.

Dad had one in our unheated greenhouse for 6 years in Zone 7. Finally when it took over most of the 20x12' greenhouse he took an ax and chopped it down.
